ADOPT A PET: Meet Maxx

NEWNAN, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half chewed shoe or overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a “companion” for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Maxx is a small Dachshund, otherwise known as a “wiener dog”. According to the Humane Society, Maxx is a playful, affectionate young puppy who will remain completely loyal to you. He is a house trained and walks on a leash, very well. He is good with older children and is up to date on all of his vaccinations.
